Ruckus Networks has entered into a distribution agreement with IT solutions provider Asia Wiring Systems (AWS) Cambodia, a subsidiary of Singapore-based AWS.

As part of the agreement, AWS Cambodia will distribute the full range of Ruckus Networks products across the country.

Specifically, these products include wireless local area network (WLAN) controllers, indoor and outdoor access points (APs) ICX switches, secure access software, analytics and location software, as well as custom IoT solutions.

"After successfully setting up a distribution channel for Ruckus products in Cambodia, we are now focused on providing our customers with the best service,” said Thak Soumonny, general manager, AWS Cambodia.

"We look forward to delivering innovative solutions to our customers in Cambodia with our partnership and hope we can continue this ongoing collaboration."

As Cambodia continues its modernisation efforts, wireless technology such as Wi-Fi will form a critical infrastructure component towards its plan to transform into a digital economy by 2023.

Efforts are underway to formulate a digital strategy and policy towards start-ups and SMEs as well as upgrade skills in the local workforce.

Cambodian Minister of Posts and Telecommunications, Tram Iv Tek stated at the 2017 Tech Startup and MSMEs Forum that the country has a target of 100 per cent broadband coverage in urban areas and 70 per cent in rural areas by 2020, with 40 per cent of Cambodia’s 15 million population still offline by end of 2017.

AWS Cambodia plans on delivering these solutions as part of their own custom solutions to meet customer requirements in Cambodia.

"The breadth and depth of Ruckus Networks' portfolio of wired and wireless network solutions are a perfect match for AWS Cambodia’s solutions offerings," said William Ho, senior vice president, Asia Pacific and Japan, ARRIS.

"We are committed to helping our partners drive more value for their customers, and to delivering great connectivity experiences to organisations of all sizes in the Cambodian market."

Incorporated in 1993, Singapore-based AWS has customers across myriad of industries including banking, finance, integrated resorts, retail, hospitality, industrial, commercial, military, education, medical, petrochemical, aerospace and transport.

Over 1,000 locations across Asia are currently served by AWS.
